The CCC is the oldest and one of the largest Cycling Club in Jersey. We organise numerous events throughout the year for riders of all abilities and ages in some picturesque locations. Everyone is welcome.
Our events cover off road MTB on private land, circuit racing at Les Quennevais, time trials and road races on open roads. Besides the competitive side of the sport, club runs depart from La Mare slip, St Clement’s coast road every Saturday at 0900 throughout the year. These rides head out to St Catherine’s and then across the north of the island for a café stop at St Ouen. These rides proceed at a steady pace that any reasonably fit person can manage. However, after St Catherine’s the pace does quicken and riders fall into their own ability groups. Regardless of fitness everybody is heading towards the café stop and it is often the tortoise who arrives before the hare!
On Sunday riders meet at 08:30 at West Park opposite the Grand St Helier. This is very much a club run and the route to the café stop is always different. If you struggle on the hills (don’t we all) regrouping takes place at the top - no one gets left behind.
If mountain biking is your interest then you are also well catered for. Three series are usually run: Winter, Summer and the Rough and Smooth. Each series consists of 8 – 10 events with Elite, Sports, Veterans, Youth all placed in their respective categories. Mountain bikers can also ride on the Les Quennevais circuit on Thursday evenings, Tuesday evening and Sunday morning time trials.
At the top end of competitive cycling we send riders to the Commonwealth Games and Island Games. We also encourage all riders to compete in the UK to obtain the standards required to go to the big Games events. Needless to say financial assistance from the club is normally granted for people with serious aspirations.
Besides all the above activity Club members participate in randonneés in France. Riders of all abilities can take part and choose distances of 60km, 100km or 160km. There is always a marvellous atmosphere at these events and you can ride as hard or as easy as you like. Above all cycling should be fun and fun is what you will get in the Cæsarean Cycling Club.
